We believe in responsible purchasing and work directly with manufacturing plants and purchasing agents across the UK, Europe and Asia to establish the most sustainable supply sources.
Those of international origin, specifically Asia, are audited by SEDEX members Asia Inspection, who operate in 77 countries around the world and visit our overseas factories to ensure total compliance.
Swift360 uses PESTLE analysis (Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal and Environmental) to find the most viable and stable sources to meet our strict criteria around competitive pricing, CSR, order fulfilment and innovation. As garment manufacture is often based around the area of supply of raw material, we take into consideration the best production capacity for a range of garments in our catalogue.
As a member of SATRA, we’re able to offer the best possible supply chain.
Ethics & Fair Trade
Our supply chain is submitted to thorough assessment via our auditing partners. This assesses whether the manufacturer fits with our own CSR policies, or is willing to improve their facility according to agreed timescales. Therefore, any audit will take into account Health and Safety and Forced Labour.
For example, we work with suppliers who are members of SEDEX and we check their SMETA audit report. We believe understanding and cooperation of suppliers is essential for promoting our CSR efforts in the entire supply chain.
